Item description for Akutagawa and Dazai: Instances of Literary Adaptation by James O'Brien...

Akutagawa Rynosuke (1892-1927) is a key figure in modern Japanese literature. He is renowned for the intellectual play and superb craft of his numerous tales. Dazai Osamu (1909-1948) was the most distinctive writer to emerge from wartime Japan. His passion and brilliance combined to create a uniquely gifted storyteller. This rich selection of tales illustrates the range of their talents, and illuminates the similarities and differences between these great writers. Translator James O'Brien, an expert in the work of Akutagawa and Dazai, provides an incisive introduction to both writers.
